Requesting Part number ebrake parking emergency cable e350 ford extended body

I just put a full floating axle from a 1999 into by 2006 that had a semi floating axle.

The parking brake cables have different ends on the 1999 (hook) vs the 2006 (loop).

Appreciate if anyone has a cable from a 99 EB or a part number.

Here are the pictures of the cable off of a 1999 E350 EB.

It appears that there is an extension cable (about 18" long) that is not on the earlier Drum RB. I realize this is not related to the difference in length of RB/EB because the wheelbase is the same.

There are these special clips to hold cable ends back top back at two spots.

The curt cable is the cable that comes from the EBrake cable at the driver's seat.

These are pictures of a 2000 E-350 EB (rear disk brakes); the other was my spare 1999 E-350 EB (also disk brakes).

You have the correct parts (for left and right), but as you can see in the first picture there is another cable to connect the front cable to the rear. You need one more section of coated cable and one more of the end-to-end fasteners.

Question: My E-brake has never worked. Anyone have a similar issue. I had the system replaced at Ford dealer with the same results. I use the Parking brake.
Any recommendations for a solution?

Yep - that is a known issue with these rigs. It would be great to hear how someone has remedied this.

After doing some research it appears as if the Ebrake is very sensitive to the rear Ebrake shoe adjustment. If the installer is sloppy they can leave the shoe too loose and it will not grab adequately.

Also, the self-adjusting shoes don't adjust very well, so they tend to lose braking force over time.

One of the other concerns might be the mechanical pull mechanism getting rusty and not moving easily. There are only a few points where this could be a problem but some of these vans get pretty rusty.

I would have hoped that your dealer could have resolved this. I know it was recommended to buy a brake diameter measuring device to preset the shoes before pushing the rear disc on.
